#DifferentAtEveryTurn


‘Kaleidoscope is a brand new music and arts festival hosted by Alexandra Palace. For the first time in 30 years the Park gates will be thrown open and its rolling hills will welcome a vibrant and eccentric cast of performers for summer celebration like no other. Kaleidoscope will create a world where music, performance, theatre and comedy embrace in a collision of beautiful noise, brilliant ideas and brazen colour.
An outdoor stage with skyline sweeping views will see an incredible headline performance from ever colourful psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips , who will be bringing their high-octane eccentricity to N22. Their ever effervescent live show promises to be an unforgettable masterclass in rock and roll.

The South View Stage will also welcome Ghostpoet , whose sung-spoken storytelling has earned widespread critical acclaim including two Mercury prize nominations. Also set to perform are British indie rock outfit Mystery Jets , who have spent the last decade honing their eclectic sound and no holds barred performance style. Completing the South View Stage lineup are infectious pop masters The Go! Team , ‘folktronica’ singer-songwriter Beth Orton , a unique twist on Paul Simon’s classic album courtesy of the awe-inspiring London African Gospel Choir presents Graceland , plus Beans on Toast, Xylaroo, Dat Brass and more.

As well as live music from some of the best in the business, there will be a whole host of world class DJs to keep North London moving, including sets from The 2 Bears, Norman Jay MBE, Mike Pickering, Don Letts, Hip Hop Karaoke and Soho Radio.

The multidisciplinary programming continues with a dedicated Words & Comedy stage featuring a host of sharp tongued comedians and thought provoking talks, debate and spoken word. The quick-witted Northern punk legend Dr John Cooper Clarke will be on hand to provide a healthy dose of satire to the days proceedings, whilst Katherine Ryan and Mark Watson will delight with their brutally honest observational comedy. Fringe favourite Andrew Maxwell completes the comedy offering. Caught By The River promises an arts, nature and culture clash plus expect inspiring insights from LDN Talks , musical satire from Johnny & The Baptist and not-your-average poetry with Bang Said The Gun and Mike Garry.

Kaleidoscope offers a new platform for exciting theatre and performance including trapeze treading daredevils Gorilla Circus , Oh My God! It’s The Church , Tin Shed Theatre , The Glory , Molly Orange and loads more incredible pop-up performances and happenings in hidden spaces. Deep under the Palace itself, Kaleidoscope and RIFT will present a brand new theatrical immersive experience in the rarely opened Victorian basements, with details to be revealed.’

Morning Glory


Morning Glory with James Endeacott & Raf Rundell.

James Endeacott and Raf Rundell used to share digs in the lofts of the Hammer House of Horror on Wardour Street. Their landlord was Bob The Builder. Partially blamed for the collapse of Northern Rock the pair were turned onto the cold streets in 2009. Since then, these itinerent music lovers have ploughed their separate furrows in the four corners of The Great Wen. Finally they return to Soho. Together again they want to share with you their Morning Glory.

Expect a mix of indie, reggae, hip hop, disco and jazz, with a bit of vinyl, astral travel news, occasional visitors from the glittering world of showbiz and lots of cups of tea.

You can hear them live weekdays 10am – 12pm on the Music channel.
